Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-rounder Superb network printer. Easy to install via ethernet connection. Deep sleep mode means it is left on permanently for shared printing as and when required - individual users get alerts if, for example, paper is out or toner cartridge is low. Combination of duplex printing and toner save mode makes it an affordable general-purpose printer - not reserved just for "special" output requiring colour. Colour printing is fine for business use - but obviously not good enough for fine art prints (will still keep Epson Pro 4000 for those!) Consumables easy to obtain and reasonably priced. Good build quality and no issues to date - not even had 1 paper jam.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Home networked printer This Brother Hl-5150CDN was a great choice as a replacement for a tired inkjet. I've had colour laser before but this one had everything I needed to satisfy the demands of a wife who researches family trees and needs text and charts, and my insatiable 11 year old grandchild who must have her homework printed up and DTP'd to a high standard. The simple setup and duplexing is a great feature that permits my networked Brother printer to talk to Windows, Apple Mac & Linux boxes with ease. For a busy family this printer knocks the socks of slower and the more costly running costs of inkjet printers, so buying one was one of my best decisions!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HL-4150CDN Colour Laser Printer Yes - I would recommend the product, but would warn against the short life and cost of the toner cartidges Good: Print quality is pretty good Bad: When one colour toner cartidge is finished, you have to change all of them. (an expensive way to operate!) The Black toner cartridge seems to have a much shorter life than on a monochrome printer. Drum life seems pretty short too. I haven't had to change it but already it tells me that only 53% life is left! When toner is low, an annoying full-page warning pops up. You can't find out which colour cartridge is low Slow to start up - annoying if you only want couple of pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer I had my previous Brother laser for 15 years. It was a fantastic printer but finally died. I mainly use it for work documents but my children need to print their homework etc. in colour and the inkjet was costing a small fortune to run and I wanted a printer I could network. This one fitted the bill really well, had good reviews and came at a very good price. It added to my home network straight away and took about half an hour to install on the network and 4 computers. Can't fault it at all. Photo printing is not as good as the inkjet, but otherwise it is spot on and very quick. I'm hoping it will be economical too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great SOHO Printer Upgraded from an older colour laser printer to the Brother after reading the reviews on other websites and in magazines. I think this model is aimed squarely at the home user or small office market with a robust printer that prints out at a fairly decent rate suitable for most users who are not in a rush for their 100 page document in an instant. Two things I've noticed with the printer is that I've had to turn the brightness settings up on the printer to match the colours on the screen and with large coloured areas of graphics (photos or illustrations) there is some noticable banding even on areas with single shades of colour. Other than that, the printer has been a good buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good replacement for other popular brand printer. This printer was bought as a replacement for another known brand printer of similar capabilities which had print driver problems. The printer is great, much faster than we had before, colour and print quality is good. Only small issue is that when printing C5 envelopes small creases are made in the back of the envelope. We have adjusted roller tension as suggested on the website, but it is not yet resolved. Waiting for futher information from Customer services. Hoping that roller tension will right itself with use. That said, very pleased with product and toner cartriges are reasonably priced too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent Brother printer As a small national charity we need a reliable quality printer but we have to consider costs. This is the third model Brother we've had over the years and all have been excellent. The duplex facility saves time and paper, the print quality looks professional and this one is even faster and quieter than it's predecessor which is great in a small office! When our old workhorse gave up, I started looking for a replacement and given the purchase price and estimated per page costs and the known quality and reliability of Brother, this was the obvious choice and I've not been disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent though with a couple of drawbacks Print quality is superb and speed more than adequate for a small business like ours. After a year of use we've found two drawbacks: (1) the construction is not as robust as it might be, and you need to be quite careful in handling the paper tray and cleaning or replacing internal components such as drums and cartridges (2) the printer will refuse to print anything more if it thinks the toner cartridge is getting too low, even if you've seen absolutely no degradation in quality - this can present a serious problem if you don't have a spare cartridge to hand as there's little warning.
